The pictures in the profile aren't even remotely same as the actual rooms allotted. Terrible service. No one at reception from 5 in the evening and hotel door open throughout night with no security. Very unsafe. Extremely poor overall.

We arrived late (11 pm), manager was already angry because he had to wait for us. Rooms were not cleaned, bath room unhygienic plus showers were broken, electricity of the elevator went out on the 1st time we were going to our room;we were stuck in the elevator for more than 5 minutes. We never used the elevator after that.... More

We booked this place for our 3 days conference stay in Kochi. It is a homestay, with a very helpful owner. The property was under renovation, so dont have much to comment on it. Room was decent and spacious with view of the waterway canal but the room curtains need cleaning. The problem with the hotel was its location. Due... More

If you want to spend the worst weekend ever with you family, go to this hotel. It is old, stinky, disgusting, roaches in the room and stained sheets. They claim they offer complimetary breakfast but they dont and the Manage/Owner is very rude.

Stayed here on my visit to Kerala at this beautiful hotel. Hotel is more or less like home stay since the Owner Mr. Sanjeev and his family runs the show. Located just beside the River in the peaceful locality. Rooms as per the budget are value for money but do not expect the comfort of 3/4 star hotels.
